Looking to buy a good starter culture of Whiteworms or Grindal Worms... probably gonna need a heat pack since I'm in Iowa and it's currently -15 here. :( Can pay via paypal immediately.

Thanks.

I'd suggest getting grindals. White worms are a pain to raise unless you have a refrigerator you can raise them in. They like it cold.
Or an unheated basement. They need to be kept between 50F and 60F for best reproduction. The refrigerator is actually a bit too cold for them to reproduce properly. I keep 3 boxes of them in my unheated basement year round. The best time to buy white worms is when it's cool season but they don't need a heatpack....heat kills the worms.....and cool enough before hot summer temps so that you don't need ice packs....cause heat kills the worms!
